The mechanic reported that the main battery ground, the one connected to the engine, was corroded and bad. He removed the connections, cleaned, and re-installed. Presto chango, the engine starts right up.

I was fooled because I was able to see voltage. I have no way of measuring current, so this one got me.

In the future I will be a lot more careful about checking ground connections.
